NATURE DETECTIVES COMING SOON !

NATURE DETECTIVES  Encore Workshop Sat August 26th

The Dade City Garden Club is proud to announce that the Nature Detectives workshop for kids ages 6-12yrs old will be presented again at the Hugh Embry Library meeting room, Dade City, on Sat Aug 26th at 11:30am. We will study the amazing butterfly  and moth. These STEM workshops, which have won State-level Garden Club awards and have also been recognized by the American Library Association, are an opportunity for children to learn all about butterflies as pollinators with hands-on activities, free gardening goodies to take home, and books to check out from the Library. Created by members of the St Augustine Garden Club, the program will be presented by members of the Dade City Garden Club in cooperation with the Library.

Space and materials are limited, so please register at the Hugh Embry Library at14215 4th St. in Dade City or call 352-567-3576 to reserve your spot!

 

Arbor Day

MEMORIAL  TREE  DEDICATION

Every year the Dade City Garden Club and the City of Dade City partners to plant trees donated in honor and memory of dear friends and relatives. A plaque is inscribed and placed at the base of these trees. The City waters them for 30 days. We have planted a diverse selection over the years and look forward to our next planting.

We will be planting in early January and trees should be ordered by December 10th. Trees are available in 15gal containers for $65 which includes plaque  and planting. Trees are planted on City property on streets and parks. We plant crape myrtles, cedar, hollies, and oaks. All varieties are subject to availability. Special requests will be considered.
